Help Buyers Find Their Dream Home
Real estate agents can assist home buyers in many ways. As mentioned in the infographic above, 87% of first time home buyers reported satisfaction with their purchase process when they worked with a professional real estate agent. Agents have a thorough knowledge of their local housing markets, and can often narrow down your search based on any requirements you specify. Doing this alone by hand can be a tricky and time consuming process. Real estate agents help you get through it.
Help Sellers Get the Best Deal
If you’re planning to sell your home, a real estate agent can help you get the best deal in your area. As noted previously, 91% of home sellers work with a real estate agent. Those who do expect a 32% increase from their sale. Agents are also able to keep listings on the market longer, giving buyers more time to find and consider your listing. Depending on the market in your area, this can be a considerable benefit. Getting similar results on your own can be a stressful, sometimes impossible struggle. A professional real estate agent will help you get a better deal with less stress.
Speed Up the Process
In addition to taking the struggle out of your home buying and selling tasks, an experienced real estate agent can also help speed up the process. Since agents are professionals familiar with the steps necessary for home sales and purchases, they can streamline the process for you, making it faster and easier. A helping hand with everything from inspections to paperwork can make a huge difference when it comes to the amount of time and effort required for your home purchase or sale.
Help with the Little Things
Another way real estate agents can help you in your home search or sale is with small issues that come up during the process. What may seem like a huge problem to a first time buyer may be a breeze for a professional real estate agent. Something as little as knowing their way around a neighborhood you’re considering buying in can save you time and irritation. Experienced agents can also provide insight into neighborhoods you may not be familiar with, but that they already know well.
